WASHINGTON (Sept. 12, 2012)—Take a trip with National Geographic to experience the magic of the world’s most spectacular destinations in a colorful new travel gift book publishing this fall. WORLD’S BEST TRAVEL EXPERIENCES: 400 Extraordinary Places (National Geographic Books; ISBN 978-1-4262-0959-8; on-sale date: Oct. 30, 2012; $40 hardcover), with a foreword by actor, director and travel writer Andrew McCarthy, showcases some of the most transformative places on Earth, from Bhutan to Bermuda, from the Sahara to the Stockholm Archipelago, and suggests unique, intriguing ways to experience them.
Earlier this week, Travel Post News reported that sales of postcards have plummeted as a result of people favouring issuing holiday updates through social networking sites. And today we bring you further sad news: the popularity of the internet could threaten the future of the travel guide book.
Recently I was introduced to a new book about travel aimed specifically towards children, Lonely Planet’s Not For Parents, The Travel Book.
